Heather Wilson Will Skip Republican National Convention

New Mexico Republican Senate nominee Heather Wilson will not attend the Republican National Convention in Tampa later this summer, her spokesman tells Hotline On Call.

Wilson spokesman Chris Sanchez said that the former congresswoman does not plan to attend the convention in August and will be campaigning in New Mexico at the time.

Wilson is running against Democratic Rep. Martin Heinrich in a state that leans Democratic. Heinrich's campaign confirmed that he plans to attend the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte this September.

Wilson's not the only competitive Republican Senate candidate skipping the Tampa gathering. Linda Lingle, the presumptive nominee in Hawaii, and Rep. Denny Rehberg, the Montana GOP nominee, will also be absent from the event.
